Message from Lynn Miller, FGIA Southeaset Region Board President
On behalf of the Southeast Region Board of Directors, I am inviting you to join us virtually from any given location to attend the FGIA Virtual Southeast Region Meeting on August 23.
We have created a diverse agenda that includes both timely and engaging topics that are of interest to our industry.
During this one-day event, there will be an update on the wind-driven rain research funded by the Florida Building Commission (FBC), the latest information on the new Proposed Water Resistance Testing Research Project and find out keys to understanding Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) Requirements for Fenestration - An Update on Adopted Building Code Specifications and Tips for Successfully Submitting Product Approvals.
Included in this action-packed day is an update on Energy Performance Requirements on ENERGY STAR® Version 7 and IECC 2024 Energy Code Updates and Anticipated Adoption.
Dr. Robbin N. Trindell (Biological Administrator, Imperiled Species Management, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission) will give us the latest on the research project. Florida's Fish and Wildlife Commission has recommended 15 percent Visible Light Transmission (VLT) in glazing used in sea turtle habitat areas. That is a significant decrease from the 45 percent VLT recommendation that is referenced in the statewide model lighting ordinance for marine turtle protection (Rule 62B-55, F.A.C.). To better inform that recommendation, FGIA is partnering with the FWC to conduct research on sea turtles to obtain data to better understand what levels of VT sea turtles may respond to, to help inform future recommendations for glazing that may better meet the needs of sea turtles and the people who live, work and visit structures in Florida coastal areas.
